About This Show
The Pavement Pounders discuss adapted science fiction, generally well-known films derived from written works. They read the book, watch the movie, watch remakes, reboots, re-adaptations, and give it all a good mulling over.
Most Recent Episode
TMTYR Episode #47: Punching People and Getting Promoted (The Secret Life of Walter Mitty)
Dec 24 16
For Christmas 2016, the Pavement Pounders discuss a film that came out on Christmas Day 2013 that also happens to be adapted from a short story which was also adapted into a 1947 Danny Kaye film that Seth just happened to grow up watching over and over.
It’s “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty,” by James Thurber, that is the subject of this episode, and you’re right in thinking it’s not Science Fiction. But it has Boris Karloff in it! And the 2013 film won a Saturn Award!
In any case, we have here some very entertaining entries without a dud in the mix. For evidence, check out the rankings (which were close in all cases).
